Delirious : art at the limits of reason, 1950-1980 by Kelly Baum( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Addressing the maniacal, eccentric, and disorienting in artworks made between 1950 and 1980, Delirious situates a fascination with the absurd and irrational within the context of the violence and brutality witnessed during World War II as well as the rapid expansion of industrial capitalism in the 1950s. Skepticism of science and technology--along with fear of its capability to promote mass destruction--developed into a distrust of rationalism, which in the arts had the paradoxical result of extracting irrational effects from rational means
Introducing Tony Conrad : a retrospective by Tony Conrad( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout his six-decade career, Tony Conrad (American, 1940-2016) forged a unique path through numerous artistic movements, from Fluxus and minimalism to the Pictures Generation and beyond. Best known for his pioneering contributions to minimal music and structural film in the 1960s, he also helped define a vast range of culture, including rock music and public television. This catalogue accompanies the first museum survey dedicated to works Conrad presented in museum and gallery settings, part of an ongoing reappraisal of his creative achievement. Inspired by the spoken, written, and performed introductions he regularly used to help frame screenings and presentations of his works, it reveals an unparalleled innovator in painting, sculpture, film, video, performance, and installation, tenaciously working to undermine the boundaries between artistic categories. Offering an in-depth introduction to Conrad's life and career, this richly illustrated volume highlights selected works dated from 1966 to 2016, including his early films; the 'Yellow Movies' and related projects in which he pickled, deep-fried, and otherwise treated film as a sculptural and performative material; his improvised sound sculptures, the 'Invented Acoustical Tools'' his ambitious films about power relations in the army and in prisons; his wide-ranging video art practice; and his many sculptures and installations that evoke and critique what he perceived as an emerging culture of surveillance, control, and containment. Nearly twenty writings by Conrade himself, some previously unpublished, are presented alongside new contributions by Rachel Adams, Vera Alemani, Cathleen Chaffee, Constance DeJong, Diedrich Diederichsen, Anthony Elms, David Grubbs, Henriette Huldisch, Branden W. Joseph, Andrew Lampert, Christopher Müller, Annie Ochmanek, Tony Oursler, Tina Rivers Ryan, Jay Sanders, Paige Sarlin, and Christopher Williams, and additional texts and interviews by Frederick Eberstadt, Isabel Eberstadt, Tyler Hubby, Mike Kelley, Gareth Long, Toby Mussman, and Cathleen Steffan. An extensive back matter section includes a chronology of Conrad's life and selected exhibition history, filmography, videography, and bibliography."

McLuhan's Bulbs : Light Art and the Dawn of New Media by Tina Rivers Ryan( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Piene's position would be superseded by the work of light artists who used electronic transducers to technologically translate between light and other phenomena, particularly sounds. These artists are represented here by Piene's close friend and colleague, Wen-Ying Tsai. In the spirit of earlier examples of "computer art," Tsai's "cybernetic sculptures" used light to announce that art would no longer be defined by its material substrates, anticipating the fluid condition of media that we associate with new media art, and digital technology more broadly, today

Delirious : art at the limits of the reason : 1950-1980 by N.Y.) Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Can postwar art be understood as an exercise in calculated insanity? Taking this provocative question as its basis, this book explores the art and history of delirium from 1950 to 1980, an era shaped by the brutality of World War II and the rapid expansion of industrial capitalism. Skepticism of science and technology - along with fear of its capability to promote mass destruction - developed into a distrust of rationalism, wich profoundly influenced the art of the times. Delirious features work by more than sixsty artists from Europe, Latin America, and the United States, including Dara Birnbaum, Leòn Ferrari. Gego, Bruce Nauman, Howardena Pindell, Peter Saul, and Nancy Spero. Experimenting with irrational subject matter and techniques, these artists forged new strategies that directly responded to such unbalanced times. Disturbing and challenging, the works in this book - in multiple media and often, counterintuitively, incorporating highly ordered and systematic structures - upend traditional notions of aesthetic harmony. Three wide-ranging essays and richly illustrated plate section investigate the degree to which delirious times demand delirious nart, inviting readers to "think crazy"
